It is powerful, eye-opening, and disturbing. Kline gives a gripping narative for the most part. I say for the most part because sometimes the narative seems repetitive. The book also appears to be well documented. They move in and inact free-trade, drastric cuts in govenrment, reduced taxes for the rich , dump price controls, and deregulation.
These changes benefit no one except the rich, the poltical leaders, and foreign corporations, who are aften one and the same. The poor in these places go from worse to worser. The book begins with shock treatment experiments funded by the CIA with possible applications to interagation. The idea was to wipe a person brain clean. They also developed sensory deprivation, and thus acting together to destroy the self to be built anew. The next preliminary topic is the Chicago School Economics led by Milton Freedman at the University of Chicago which developed neoliberalism, which to me is a misnomer, seeing how it is a very conservative doctrine.

It should be of interest to others interested in how modern economic theory affects the world. Naomi Klein is the same age as me. She was born in capitalist Canada, I in socialist Poland.
In communism collapsed like a house of cards. It created a breach that flooded the new wave. At that time, working in the corporate seemed fondest dream; stable, interesting work, modernity, prestige, touching a better world.
Today, after 28 years, the situation has changed. Corporate employees called in Poland as lemmings. The Shock Doctrine is shocking. I think this was the aim of the author, starting from a high "C" or by describing interrogation techniques, including torture, in the first part.
Disaster makes the opportunity for profit. In these few words can be summarized as six hundred pages book that touches the problems of social injustice and corporate greed over the years , including Chile, Argentina, Bolivia, China, Poland, Russia, South Africa, Sri Lanka, USA.
Naomi's views are clearly defined: The influence of family? It is hard to expect that the contents of the book differed from the author's worldview. For neoliberalism Naomi replies shocking content. I learned a lot from this book. But they. The urge for hegemony and preponderance by some will be matched with greater intensity by the longing for dignity and justice by others. McLaren and Jaramillo recognize that it is difficult to engage in critical pedagogy in these times of seemingly hegemonic neoliberalism.
